    So Far Out, They're In

    Having browsed through the No Boy/Girl May Be Cool Enough For lists, I honestly think the following names are very useable:

    Archibald – full name of the now popular Archie
    Burton – Hollywood actor name revisited or a nod to a surf company
    Seymour – noble last name that’s ready to be dusted off
    Stanley – another noble last name that has great nickname possibilities

    Beaulah – secretly always loved this name
    Doris – Hollywood namesake ready for a comeback
    Edna – along the Ada resurgence and great nickname Edie
    Ethel – retro classic
    Gertrude – Shakespearean and Gerty is a great nickname
    Helga – why not?
    Hortense – could only go up from here
    Irma – Irmy is a possible cute nickname
    Joyce – a nod to a Joy in the family
    Phyllis – now even used in soap operas
    Shirley – another Hollywood classic

    I’m the sort of person that thinks even Chablis could be workable. What other names off such forbidden lists could be diamonds in the rough? Your reasons why would be greatly appreciated.
